|Workshop Date:||20 March 2018|
|Information:||Hydropower plants can offer a reliable and clean source of energy. However, these installations can often pose difficult challenges for the surrounding environment, particularly the fish species living in the rivers.
This workshop has been organised in the context of FIThydro (Fishfriendly Innovative Technologies for Hydropower, http://www.fithydro.eu/).
This workshop was the second in a series of 4 regional workshops (the 1st was held in Paris, in January) and will serve as a platform for consultation and exchange between FIThydro scientists, stakeholders and water users involved or affected by hydropower production in the region of Iberian Peninsula.
At this event, key aspects of the FIThydro work-program were presented and participants were invited to give their feedback and highlights on the key open issues on the assessment and planning of ecologically compatible hydropower production.
|Workshop Topics||• Fish-passages for up and downstream migration: attraction flow.
• Cyprinid species: ecology and constraints
• The impacts of hydropeaking and mitigation measures.
• Environmental flows: applicability to Mediterranean-streams
